EtherCAT P: One Cable Automation for the field level

2016-08-25 13:35 | 58 calls
EtherCAT P combines communication and power supply on a standard 4-wire Ethernet cable. System and sensor suppy “Us“ and peripheral voltage “Up“ for actuators are galvanically isolated and directly injected into the wires of a 100 Mbit line, resulting in a highly cost-efficient and compact connection. Using a matching combination of connectors and cables, a complete machine unit can be supplied with a only one line. All advantages of EtherCAT, such as free choice of topology, high speed, optimised bandwidth utilisation and telegram processing on the fly are equally available with EtherCAT P.
